December’s here much quicker than we expected, but then time has flown through 2019, hasn’t it? Before you know it, we’ll be into 2020, and marking 400 years since the Mayflower set sail from the UK to the USA. In our big interview, we spoke with one of the world’s greatest explorers, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, about his experiences and thoughts on the Mayflower’s legacy. Also this week, we have details on a Special Election in Maryland’s 7th Congressional District, details on mailing deadlines to get packages and cards to the US in time for Xmas, and a reminder of some important Winter driving tips from the USAF in the UK. All this, plus the latest ‘Always Playing Away’ Column from Mike Carlson. Enjoy your newsletter!
